  • "The Garden Cottage is a beautiful cottage in the heart of chipping Norton."

    It was perfect for our recent stay in the Cotswolds and Allison was the perfect host! Thank you for making our trip so wonderful letting us stay in your lovely cottage.

  • "Absolutely incredible hospitality from Allison."

    She left some delicious lemon cake, bread, jam, milk and all the necessities. She had even left some dog bowls, bed and treats for our dogs. This was such a nice treat on arrival! The property was really cute and had everything you needed in terms of cooking/firewood/towels/toilet paper, etc. The place is as it is described - a beautiful traditional British cottage - which does come with the downside of having quite low ceilings in some places which meant my husband kept banging his head everywhere he went (although he is a bit taller than the standard person (6’2). And the shower was a bit temperamental but otherwise, we loved it and couldn’t have asked for a better more thoughtful host. Amazing communication and certainly went the extra mile. And last but certainly not least, this garden is magnificent! The bluebells, daffodils and hyacinth were all out and there was several different places to bask in the sunshine or enjoy a glass of wine and a book. Would highly recommend if you are looking for a little cottage in the cotswolds.

    The location is perfect and walking distance to some great restaurants and pubs. Communication with Allison was great and she was so kind and helpful.

Thank you for a wonderful stay!

  • "We had a wonderful week at the cottage."

    It's a charming space, well appointed, and full of lovely touches: the hosts had left a cake, and bread and butter for the morning. Our dog settled in to the dog bed by the fire and didn't want to leave. Well positioned for the town and for the eastern edge of the Cotswolds. Would absolutely recommend it and stay again.

  • "Four of us stayed for a long weekend and had such a lovely warm inviting welcome by our host."

    Local breakfast provisions had been left out for us and we also arrived to a homemade cake! We loved using the fire and all of the provided logs/kindling etc. The kitchen was completely kitted out and the cottage in general had everything and more we could have needed for our stay. The decor and quality of the cottage is top rate and has a real luxury feel. The interiors were admired by all of this. Couldn't recommend more highly! Thank you for having us.

    HannahNov 2019

  • "Amazing location, cottage provided everything the weather gave us."

    A sunny Saturday meant a BBQ and resting in the hammock. A rainy Sunday meant we could relax and keep warm by the fire pit and fire place. Host was very helpful and accommodating. Would definitely go again and recommend.

    VannaSep 2019

  • "Just been on a weekend break with my girlfriends and we had such a lovely time!"

    Parking was not problem, there is one pass and free on street parking, so between our two cars it was fine. The cottage is beautiful, lovely kind touches such as the delicious carrot cake and bread and butter left for us. The cottage is a wonderful cosy space, the garden was gorgeous to sit out in and I can imagine in winter would be lovely too. Nice local pubs within 2 mins walking, local shops for convenience as well. Would highly recommend this lovely place, one of the best air Bnb's weve stayed in, many thanks.

    CatherineSep 2019

Upon entering the cottage, you are immediately welcomed by the open-plan living space, the sitting area showcases a charming Cotswold stone fireplace with a warming woodburning stove, where you can snuggle up in front of the flames on the welcoming sofas and catch up on the TV on choose from the selection of books and games on offer to have a fun-filled evening, the attractive shaker-style kitchen overlooks the garden and contains everything you and your guests need to cook up delicious home-cooked meals before retreating to the wooden dining table to catch up about your schedule for the holiday that lies before you.

A handy utility room lies on the ground floor, containing a washing machine and tumble dryer, meaning you and your guests can leave with a bag full of clean washing at the end of your stay.

As the day draws to a close, head up the open riser spiral staircase to the first floor where you will find the light and airy bath room and through a lovely arched doorway, bedroom two, with ample storage space and a double bed.

A second flight of stairs leads up to the master bedroom in the eaves which enjoys scenic views across to the church and distant fields, has ample storage and a king size bed, the perfect space to lay your head and get some well-earned rest.

In the morning, make use of the Nespresso coffee machine and milk frother in the kitchen, before retreating to the beautiful walled garden to enjoy the fresh country air; you will see that the foundations of three former cottages have been transformed into an unusual multi-level space with carefully thought-out cottage garden planting.

A paving stone pathway leads you uphill to the first patio, which is a sunny spot with a gas barbecue and garden table set, the path continues uphill under a rose-covered archway to a pergola and second patio featuring seating and a fire pit and from here, the path bends back through an elevated wild flower meadow, where there is a hammock slung under an old plum tree and, further on, a bench for enjoying the sights and scents.

With the lowest wall on the long south side, the garden enjoys sunshine throughout the day, while mature trees provide welcome shaded areas in the warmer months.
